    You guys do realize that 1% of a million PS4s is 10,000.

    Can anyone honestly say they've seen anything indicating that 10,000 people are storming the internet with broken PS4s? Are any news outlets running stories about broken PS4s after the initial $#@!-storm caused by the Taco Bell promo?

    It's looking rather unlikely, but we'll see in the days ahead.

    I'm dismissing it until I see something worthy of being concerned about. This thread and the overwhelming number of BS reviews on Amazon is not worthy of anything else.

    Your quoted post is dead on. Too bad you didn't use that common sense in this thread instead of accusing folks of burying their head in the sand when this is exactly what you described in that post.

    I'm dismissing it as well as far as it actually happening. however I am keeping in mind that if something like that happened, there would be a lot of implications toward ps4 users. so I'm not a full ostrich, let's say I go halfway even tho she said tip only

    Last I looked, and I admit it was over 24 hours ago, Amazon had around 190 bad reviews. 145 were verified purchases. Im not dismissing them, I just think 190 isn't a hell of a lot.

    It's kind of funny how some people are focusing on Amazon, because this time around, they are a major pre-order distributor so there is more data to manipulate.

    Meanwhile, they are tending to ignore this about Amazon. They have to use UPS and Fedex shipping. There are dozens of these videos around, security cameras catching them or like this person, witnessing it happen in front of them. It's really a big problem and nobody is doing anything about it.

    My console came in from Amazon looking fine. Box wasn't damaged or anything. But when I'm sending it back, I'm going through Sony for everything. It's a lot easier and if there was a problem, I'll let them handle it for mine, at least.

    Yep. And I bet the majority of them are legit. But the reviews got overridden by trolls, of course. If the Amazon review section were representative of the over MILLION PS4s sold, you would be seeing complaints everywhere and not just random youtube videos, reddit posts, and $#@! like this. It would be RROD all over again, which is exactly some (yes, here as well) are hoping for.

    Fingers crossed that the vast majority of PS4 and X1 users get a completely working console, but folks should prepare themselves for more crap like this over the next month.

    And this is why I choose to have electronic device done on pickup (though even then it'd have to be shipped to the shop in the first place, but then again, they're usually shipped?transported there in crates/pallets all wrapped together, so it's much safer and I'm eliminating an extra form of possible handling/damage).

    I think a lot of these claims of BLOD about the PS4 are mostly false, and hopefully the work of xboners rather than some malicious move by M$. But I am not discounting the possibility that some of them are true.

    Just seems to me 'real' people who got PS4's (people you know, people on your friends lists, and other 'verified' folks, are having no problems like this at all, or is only very few). It only seems to be the people that decided to start using the internet on the 15th or 16th to make these claims.

    Just look at the official PS4 support forum (HERE), the thread for broken PS4's and the one an Sony official rep made to help troubleshoot, is FILLED with people who registered within a day or two, all making nearly the exact claims (PS4 has blue flashing light, they had to wait 50 hours on the phone with customer service, nobody was picking up the phones at Sony's customer service etc etc etc).

    Now granted somebody registering and making a complaint is fairly normal, but if the amount of new people making reviews and comments all over the net was any indication of the PS4 failure rate, it would be hovering around 30-40%, which I highly doubt to be the case.


    Just look at this thread, clearly the OP was full of it. And I have seen many more like this on other PlayStation forums. Just seems far too suspicious for me to take with anything other than a grain of salt.

    Mine froze first day, I unplugged it and its been working since.

    I wonder if some people are having problems because they don't have enough patience?

    when I first power mine up it seemed to pause for a while while setting up and going through system updates?

    The fact that there isn't one thing wrong, but lots of different things, would suggest that there is nothing systemic, but rather just typical issues that will happen when you sell 1 million units in a short space of time.
    Had you listed just one fault, happening over and over again, that would be cause for some (minor) concern.

    The last one is bull$#@!. Dude yammers on about how reliable his 360 is. And the video title says he got "electrocuted". lol. Screams staged.

    Some of the rest are legit issues, except the wobble crap. And? I think it has been fully established that with all consoles there will isolated incidents like these. Let's see what your take on defects regarding console launches are like in about a week.
